  Those users have too widely open protections either at their
  .forward  file, or at their home directory.

  For the home directory:  755 OR STRICTER,
  for the .forward file:   644 OR STRICTER.

  That is, group-write access is considered dangerous and puts the resulting
  expansions into non-trusted mode.
